LOOK WHO’S COMING TO FEAST!

Breakfast gets a wild overhaul and you get a preview sample thanks to Prescott Bergh and his family who started Simply Native Foods earlier this year. Be among the first to taste this awesome wild rice breakfast treat – yes! before it’s even available in stores! Launching this hot breakfast cereal of all-indigenous ingredients was fated to happen: Prescott was raised in a family committed to foraging wild foods and has spent most of his life managing his organic farm and working in the organic food industry. Simply Native Grains is no instant oatmeal. A satisfying breakfast blend crafted exclusively of indigenous ingredients for active, health conscious eaters. Preston’s new sustainable morning sustenance is based on a nutrient and texture-rich, low-glycemic supergrain: wild rice. This wholesome breakfast from Simply Native Foods won’t be on store shelves until the end of 2014, but for those attending the FEAST! Festival and Tradeshow in Rochester, MN on Sunday, November 2nd, a tasty sample is a bit closer on your horizon. Read more about trend-setting vendors who'll be attending…

 • MUSIC TO MUNCH BY…

What’s a festival without some festive tunes? FEAST! is thrilled to host 4 live bands, including the DitchLilies, Wisconsin's American and International Roots duo playing from 10am - 11:30 on November 2. The DitchLilies have been in musical cahoots since 1998. Kari Larson and Lisa Schultz are stringed multi-instrumentalists/vocalists with a soft spot and keen enthusiasm for early swing, old-time mountain music, world roots and juke joint songs from the golden era. Together, they turn back in time to dust off the rare and forgotten tunes or to hone the familiar tried and true melodies.  Read more about who'll be entertaining…
